My venue at this stage of my life is the business community and that’s where I am focusing my energies to making positive change. My books, keynotes and trainings are all about systems that foster peace of mind and productivity through personal and professional growth and development. They offer models for identifying values and mission and give procedures and processes for bringing them to life- acting in congruence with them at all times.
